S2 PUMA – High-Power, Versatile Benchtop EDXRF

The S2 PUMA is the Energy-Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer for elemental analysis

The benchtop instrument for solid and liquid samples, prepared or bulk, for the analysis from carbon to americium (C – Am). Detectable elemental concentrations in the samples can range from ppm up to 100%.

Its high-power X-ray tube together with the HighSense™ LE detector and the unique sample handling options make it the perfect fit for many applications in industry and research, where precise and accurate results must be delivered fast on an easy-to-operate instrument.

Depending on sample type and desired throughput, the versions Single, XY Autochanger, Carousel, Automation cover all possible scenarios. The XY Autochanger can even be configured for full integration into automated laboratory environments. The HighSense™ LE detector is a fast silicon drift detector (SDD) with high count rates for shortest measurement times. The optional TouchControl™ touchscreen enable users with only very minimal amount of training to operate the instrument.

Chemical

Chemical

The chemical industry produces a broad array of materials: Rubbers, dyes, salts, fertilizers, life sciences products, specialty chemicals, and consumer products such as detergents are just a few examples. The often complex manufacturing processes, their intermediates, and final products need close monitoring.

Education

Education

Many professional occupations require extensive knowledge about analytical techniques. Elemental analysis is one of the most common laboratory requirements and as such students have to learn the ropes of XRF technology. However, many labs of higher education institutions also perform research work and as such the instrument must deliver reliable analysis results and a variety of samples.

Geology & Geosciences

Geology & Geosciences

Geosciences are a wide field and so are the requests for elemental analysis. Geology, mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, and paleontology (fossils) do all require information on elemental concentrations of their samples. EDXRF technology can help to acquire these data quickly and precisely.

Minerals & Mining

Minerals & Mining

The resource industry involves many steps from exploration to production. In many of them elemental concentrations of the commodities or of other indicative elements have to be known. Sample types include rocks, core, ore, and soils and quite often quick answers to the concentrations of their elemental content are valuable.

Pharma & Biotech

Pharma & Biotech

Research and product quality are both important applications in the life sciences and pharmaceutical industries. Particularly the products from within these industry segments underlie strict regulations, as to ensure the quality of resulting medications and other products. This makes reliable and precise analytical measures necessary.

Cement & Building Materials

Cement & Building Materials

Cement as a binder in the building industry has been known for centuries, but today it is even more important than ever. Cement literally is the foundation of our modern infrastructure, as binder in brickwork and walls; as floor screed in buildings; and as concrete in bridges, tunnels, ports, and other civil engineering projects.

Consumer Safety

Consumer Safety

With increasing global trade of goods, customers have increasing more access to products manufactured under foreign legislations. To ensure products from foreign and domestic markets are safe, consumer safety regulated by authorities and contracted to commercial laboratories becomes ever important. Regulations such as RoHS and WEEE are just some, which makes analyses on all sorts of products necessary.
